These are from a day last spring, April 2020. Lake Michigan was near record high levels. So the water was just about 1 foot from the top of the pier when it was calm. On very calm days it was possible to walk out, but not advisable since it was often wet and so was algae covered and quite slippery. Very dangerous. There are boulders on either side of the cement part about 8-10 feet out. With the water so high, they are covered. So, if you slipped or were swept off you may get caught in the rocks. Not good.
This particular day was about 35mph sustained winds and up to 50mph gusts with 8-10 foot waves. My kind of beach day! Honestly, I could stand here all day and watch the water. It's mesmerizing and awesome and the next day it could be flat as glass. Hard to believe.
I took 298 pictures and managed to cut it down to 257. Say what you will. Hope you enjoy this angry lake.
